Local organizations are participating in the first ever celebration of  “Mobility Week”.

According to OCCK Transportation, from Oct. 29 to Nov. 5, public transportation providers, Mobility Managers, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) and partners across the state are celebrating the first annual Mobility Week.

Together, we can ensure a safe and efficient transportation system for our great state.”
